MALTBY MAIN 3 GLASSHOUGHTON WELFARE 1
AFTER THE DIZZY HEIGHTS OF FA CHALLENGE CUP FOOTBALL WELFARE RETURNED
TO THE BREAD & BUTTER OF LEAGUE FOOTBALL ONLY TO PRODUCE A SHOCKING PERFORMANCE AGAINST LOWLY OPPONENTS AT A FOG BOUND
Main were in front after less than a minute, Darren Green being left
spare in what appeared to be an offside position to go on and easily beat keeper Darren Holmes. Welfare came back strongly and reduced the arrears on 13 minutes through Richard Dobson and appeared to
be well in contention when once again a lack of concentration led to their downfall, a long punt from keeper Scott Hartley
finding the visitors defence having pushed up and Main’s Daniel Parker capitalised on the space to cut in and once again
give Holmes no chance to save.
As the fog thickened round the ground Welfare continued to give away
hard won possession and it was no real surprise when a more determined Maltby went further ahead, the goal being credited
to striker Scott Somerville, it being impossible from the dug outs to actually see any play in either goal mouth, and there
was a serious consideration that the game should have been abandoned.
